Name of Project: Browns Fire Restoration

Location: Lassen National Forest, CA

Number of Trees Planted: 235,100

This project will restore various forests in Northeast California that were victims of wildfire. These areas are located in what is known as the Crossroads, owing to the intersection of the Sierra Nevada, the Cascade, the Modoc Plateau and the Great Basin Ranges. Specifically, this project will restore forests in regions affected by a number of fires, including the Browns, Butte, Sugarloaf and Goose Fires. American Forests is working with the U.S. Forest Service to plant 235,100 trees across 1,028 acres, which will accelerate the return of healthy stands of trees and improve species diversity in these areas. By reestablishing various pine and fir species, this project will provide soil stabilization and aid in long-term watershed recovery. Along Highway 89, where the Goose Fire burned most of its trees, 88 acres will be planted to help restore the visual character along this scenic highway.
